The two main productive activities are Fishing and Tourism.
This fishing port is the second most important
in the province and fishing provides its main source of income.
Garrucha is located between the beaches of historic
Mojacar and the next town of Vera.
The origin of the town dates back to the 16th century, when it was
founded by a group of fishermen, who protected themselves from pirate
attacks by constructing a tower.
The promenade (Paseo Maritimo) runs the length of the town and is
a peaceful oasis for locals and visitors, where they can relax and
walk amongst the palm trees.
The beaches in Garrucha offer many kilometers of wide unspoilt access
passing Vera beach up to the quiet traditional village harbour of
Villaricos in the North and to the beach of Mojacar in the South.
